Fashion icon challenge: Ines de la Fressange

Ines isn't one of my usual inspirations, but I love her style. (Her Uniqlo collab is pretty great too!) As I got dressed this morning, haphazardly, I realized I could add a few touches and channel her look.

The basics, what I was going to wear anyway, are the Joie metallic linen top and R13 boyfriend jeans (which are too big).

I added this old silk scarf that I love, a skinny belt, and tucked my shirt instead of wearing it out. The oxfords are a more Ines look than the combat boots I originally meant to wear. And my new smartwool socks add a little bit of hipster flair, I think, though I usually wear the oxfords with no socks and that might be better.

Does Ines come through at all?

(The jeans really are too big. Le sigh.)

    Fabulous. Ines from the waist up. Greyscale from the belt down. Why not! Your hipster socks are adorable, and so is your smile. Good job.

    I'm not very familiar with her style, but I was going to say the same as Angie.  French chic on top, hipster on the bottom.

    Nicely done! I like this outfit on you, Greyscale--it's a bit French chic and bit tough. Looks great!

  • crazyone replied 2 years ago

    Ines comes through, and Frenchness definitely comes through--some of the French scientists at my company dress like this, both top and bottom!  

    Fun seeing a bit of your science behind you :-)

    Crazyone -- I love my whiteboard! My first grad student gave it to me for my birthday two years ago. I reimbursed the cost, but his huge kindness was in getting it installed, because I kept saying I wanted one but never got around to it. Seeing some science on it makes me very happy.

    Fun! I like the little changes to add just a touch of Ines to your look. Especially like the combo of tucked top + silky neck scarf.

    Love it!!

    Love it. I know she wears oxfords because I saw a pic of her in her Oxfords when I looked her up. The neck scarf is so French chic.

    Love this.  A bit of both.

    You, and your whiteboard background, are utterly fab and utterly unique. Ines, a whisper, yes, but also you. Woman of style.

    I had no idea how you were gonna do it. Ines is rather a challenge if you ask me. Well done - the scarf is brilliant.

  • shevia replied 2 years ago

    That is what inspiration is all about. Love the oxfords!

  • Maneera replied 2 years ago

    Love!!! The polished scarf & tucked -in tee together balance out the lose jeans....so your outfit is still pretty pulled together. I love the socks!

  • skylurker replied 2 years ago

    I think the jeans are all yours - nevermind, I like this outfit on you.
